Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is an exercise-based program for reducing the symptoms of disequilibrium and dizziness associated with vestibular pathology. The program is designed to achieve goals such as decreasing dizziness and visual symptoms, increasing balance and walking function and increasing general activity levels.  The program may include exercises for coordinating eye and head movements, stimulating the symptoms of dizziness in order to desensitize the vestibular system, improving balance and walking ability and improving fitness and endurance.

Treatment of BPPV is done by using canalith-repositioning maneuvers (a series of head maneuvers that move displaced calcium carbonate crystals out of one of the semicircular canals of the inner ear).
